British government to pass anti-BDS law, senior Conservative says

The newly elected Conservative government is set to pass a law banning public bodies in Britain from engaging with the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, a senior UK official said on Sunday.
Lord Eric Pickles, the UK Special Envoy for post-Holocaust matters, told a conference in Jerusalem that the new law would ban public agencies from working with those who boycott Israel in any way.
“BDS is anti-Semitic, and should be treated as such,” Pickles said, adding that the United Kingdom would have been less of a nation without its Jewish citizens.
